Hi, I just joined seconds ago because I would like to check if anyone has had the symptoms I'm having.
First off, I apologise if my manners, english and/or grammar is, well, dodgy but the old brain isnt working properly today!!
OK, I got a cold at the end of October which lasted two days. The remnants have continued tho - I got eczema/allergic reaction on my face which got infected so got antibiotics followed by a sinus infection that caused my sinuses to clamp shut so another lot of antibiotics. Finished them all about a fortnight ago but still cant stop coughing. the cough is so strong I'm also being sick with it.
So, my bright idea was to stop smoking. Smoking + chest problems = worse chest problems. I had final cig on Friday night. Yesterday I was OK but, duting the night last night, I ended up with my sinuses closing again and a sore throat. Today I feel spaced out, detached and generally yuk.
I'm on patches but have to wear them on my stomach as they irritate my arms. (always have to be different!!!)
I suppose I'm interested in whether or not anyone has had experiences like mine. Sure, I know I'm not unique - far from it but I'd appreciate any reassurance that I'm not going loopy and aint developing some mad after cold infection.
And, apologies for sounding like a right whinge - I had a look at other posts and everyone else seems quite upbeat and cheerful. Then comes me .... :mad:
